We’d like to officially welcome Talia Aikens-Nunez to the Central Avenue Publishing family. Her book OMG… Am I a Witch?! is a wonderful addition to our too small children’s offering and we are very proud that she found us. This title was originally published by Pinwheel Books and has already won a silver Benjamin Franklin and kudos from some great authors and editors.
This early chapter book follows April Appleton as she inadvertently changes her big brother into a small dog. April never realized she had these magical powers, but now that her brother is a pooch, what will she do? A fun read, it’s perfect for the 7 to 12 year old in your life.
Talia Aikens-Nunez wanted to be a meteorologist, a politician and a lawyer. It was raising her bilingual children that inspired Talia to write multicultural children’s books. Her family loves nature so much that she and her husband vowed that they will always try to live close to water, so now they live on a river in Connecticut.

We are very pleased to present the next book in The Chrysomelia Stories: Underworld’s Daughter. These stories centre around Sophie & Adrian, or Persephone & Hades, as they once were in a previous life. It all started when a stranger walks into Sophie’s dorm room on her first day at university and whisks her away to a spirit realm. While there, she is tricked into eating some pomegranate and shortly after, memories of previous lives come flooding back.
Underworld’s Daughter picks up where Persephone’s Orchard left off, incorporating Sophie’s & Adrian’s friends – both current and in Ancient Greece. Ringle’s world-building is just fantastic and the dynamics between her characters is fascinating. If you haven’t read Persephone’s Orchard yet, you’re in luck because we’ve put it on sale for 99 cents for a limited time. And if you’re interested in winning the books plus some great swag, be sure to enter the give-away.
